Craftworx Kickstarter Campaign for the “Ultimate” Carbon Road Wheels

The Craftworx brand take pride in offering the highest quality custom wheel builds available.

The Brisbane-based wheelbuilders have a history in alloy wheel building but after extensive R&D and product testing Craftworx are nearly in the production phase of their ‘Ultima’ Carbon Road Wheel.

The carbon road wheels feature a range of top-end manufacturing techniques to make them durable and fast without the price tag. The goal for Craftworx is to make a carbon wheel that redefines performance and value for money.

The Craftworx ‘Ultima’ Carbon Road Wheel features a Dual Carbon Layering Process in the design and manufacture where the blend of high-modulus and mid-modulus carbon fibres create a more dynamically balanced wheel. The carbon threads are also impregnated with resin to optimise the amount of carbon and resin used.

They also introduced noise-reduction technology, reinforced valve holes, a highly wear-resistant brake track surface and seamless aerodynamics. 

There are three ‘Ultima’ rim profiles including 28mm, 38mm and 50mm depths with the option to upgrade to a combination rim profile wheelset with a 28-38mm set and a 38-50mm set. The internal width of the rims are 16.5mm whilst the external width measures 25mm. The wheels also come with the option to include the Craftworx anodised hubs or a DT Swiss 240 hub, Sapim race spokes and either stainless steel or titanium skewers.
